A simplicial sheaf is equivalently
a simplicial object
in a category of sheaves for some site ;
a simplicial presheaf
that satisfies degreewise the sheaf condition;
an SSet-valued presheaf
which, when regarded under the equivalence
is degreewise a sheaf.
The Jardine-local model structure on simplicial presheaves restricts to the standard model structure on simplicial sheaves. This restriction is a Quillen equivalence, so that equipped with this model structure is a model for the hypercomplete (infinity,1)-topos over the site .
A discussion of the homotopy theory of simplicial objects in toposes using Cisinski model structures is in
- Garth Warner, Homotopical topos theory (pdf)
The last part of
is announced to be about simplicial objects in toposes, but that part does not exist yet.
